Default Slow database build with ogg

Hi guys, long time lurker here, first-time poster.

I have RB'ed an 8gb Clip+ and I'm loving all the functionality so far. I am using a 32gb microsd card with ~1800 tracks, and ~50 in the internal memory.

Initially the tracks were in mp3 (transcoded from flac rips), but after hearing that ogg vorbis would have a better battery life, I re-encoded my library. The problem I'm having is that every time I add files and rebuild the database, it takes around 8-10 minutes to detect all the files. With mp3s it took less than a minute. (I should also note that the Clip+ firmware's DB refresh takes around 2 minutes with ogg, which was also slower than with mp3).

I was just wondering if other people have experienced this, and whether it's a problem with Rockbox (and I should file a bug report) or just a problem inherent with the way ogg tags work.
